FLORIDA SKY SCRAPERS
Sky-scraping buildings are sign of prosperity. And
they are now bcinning to spring up throughout the
larger cities of the State Jacksonvlle will soon boast of
about twelve towering oice buildings ranging from six
to twelve stories. In Pensacol a fifteen story edifie i in
course of coaas utlon and others are being planed.
Tampa has not yet reached the sky-line, but she will not
lag behind lo g. Whb apitalists put fortunes in such
buildings they feel very rire of the rapid and continued
growth of the city. Florida welcome the sky scrapers!

Value of Southern Water Power
-Plans for Its Development
Low Price of Naval Stores Will
Force Many Out of Business
A RECENT official report on the riv-
ers that drain the Southern Appa-
lchian Mountains assert that they form
oetively the greatest water-power in
the United States, capable of doing work
werth the income of something like one
billion dollars, provided their usefulness
is mot harmed by cutting away the timber
t their sources. It is estimated that at
at two million eight hundred thousand
Indicated horse-power is developed by the
steams of this water-shed, more than half
ot which is available for economic devel-
pmemt. Says a writer in Forestry and
ligationn (Washington, July):
"Only a comparatively small part of
tMs has been made use of yet, but the
porti that has been utilized has been one
of the most important factors in the re-
mt industrial development of the South.
Am the future the use of this power and its
:ialhr are bound to increase tremendously.
Mamnfaeturing plants are constantly in-
easaing in number in the region, and it is
.somsmable to expect that in time the cen-
Ar of the cotton-weaving industry in the
United States may be moved from the
rmns of New England, where it has re-
=mited so long, nearer to the source of
i mply for the raw material.
"Moreover, water-power, or power orig-
matting in the streams, will be more and
'*ure in demand here, as everywhere else
_h the country, on account of the increas-
e snat of fuel power through dwindling
1el resources of the country. Already
water-power costs much less than the
and the difference will inevitably
w greater. One great difficulty of the
of water-power, not only in the
Sbt along the New England streams
well, though possibly to a less degree,
the fact that it can not be depended
the year around, but must be sup-.
and replaced for some weeks or
every summer by costly fuel pow-
because the streams run too low to be
SMore than is, as the years go on
owners are painfully aware that the
water periods are growing longer and
This is because the forests at the
of the streams are being cut
with the result that the melting win-
rmews and the spring rains pour off

r-, educing the capacity and usefulness

are business men wider awake
to the danger than in the South. If dis-
criminate cutting of the forests on the
crests of the watershed can be stopped,
there is a possibility, according to a re-
cent report of experts, of increasing the
development of power up to anywhere
from three to thirty times the one million
four hundred thousand horse-power at
present available. Without it almost
nothing can be done. The method pro-
posed to develop the Appalachian river
resources to the total of forty-two million
horse-power is by storage reservoirs, which
would catch the surplus waters of the
spring and retain them until the summer
months, when the mills now have to fall
back on fuel or close down.
"The United States Geological Survey
has kept records of stream flow in the Ap-
palachians for a number of years and re-
cently they made a careful study of the
possibilities of storage reservoirs in that
region... The experts of the Geological
Survey who made the investigation, after
picking out reservoir sites and estimating
their capacity and the area from which
they would receive the run-off, consider the
figures given above extremely conserva-
tive. Even with only one million four
hundred thousand horse-power, the annual
return at $20 per horse-power per year
would amount to $28,000,000. That is
equal to a gross income of 3 per cent. on
,a capital of about $933,000,000. These fig-
Iues seem to justify a considerable outlay
of money to achieve the benefits prom-
EAST COAST SHOPS RESUME WORK.
Miami, Aug. 27.-The machine shop be-
longing to the Florida East Coast Rail-
road in this city, which has been idle sev-
eral months, has been started up with a
number of machinists at work. The
steamers and other boats used by the rail-
road company on their extension work
have been brought here, and are undergo-
ing thorough repairs. There are a number
of these boats already here, and others
will be brought up from the extension,
until the fleet has been put in good repair.
Every few days a batch of laborers are
brought from tire northern part of the
State, and are sent south at different
points along the extension. It is rumored
that by the first of October the work of
extending the railway from Knight's Key
south will be in full blast. It is hardly
probable that a large force of men and
boats will be put upon the line until after
the storm period has passed. Thus far
the weather conditions have been most
favorable for all kinds of work along the
M R. J. O. LA FONTISEE, who is in
charge of the special study being
made by the government of the naval
stores industry in this and other States
in the turpentine belt, is inclined to be-
lieve that unless there is a decided im-
provement in prices within the next few
months or during the present producing
season, many of the small operators are
to be forced out of business and some of
the extensive operators are to abandon it
as a matter of choice.
Mr. LaFontisee has returned from points
in Alalama, where he visited a number of
the turpentine places in the southern
part of the State and conferred with fac-
tors at Mobile and Pensacola.
"I find the operator discouraged. While
there are some who are inclined to
search for a silver lining to the cloud, the
great majority of them are frankly of the
opinion that there is not much to be ex-
pected in the shape of an improvement,
though no reasons are assigned for this
opinion. They see the prices far below
the cost of production now and feel that
they are to rempain so."
Mr. LaFontisee made the above state-
mient in a conversation with a representa-
tive of the Industrial Record yesterday.
When asked what effect the present
prices are to have on the industry
throughout the belt, Mr. LaFontisee said:
"Those at all familiar with the industry
know that there is no money in manufac-
turing spirits at the prevailing prices.
Some are managing to make ends meet,
but not all are doing that, so far as they
indicate in their statements to me. Of
course you will find some who are in the
that there is no profit in it and that they
made money when spirits was selling for
29 cents. But they have little if any-
thing to say of the cost of labor now as
compared to what it cost at that time.
Neither do they take into account the fact
that the price of timber is far above what
it was then.
"I have conferred with some of the best
business men of the South recently, who
are engaged in this industry. I have found
one or two who claim that they manage
to make a little out of turpentine and
rosin, but the majority of them claim that
they are operating at a loss. I know one
firm operating seven places which will
abandon the naval stores industry and
saw what timber they have. This firm
has extensive holdings in this and other
Southern States. Two years ago the firm
determined to bleed their timber before
sawing and commenced operating on an
extensive scale. The manager told me
that they had in only six months lost $1,-
300 and that they had a sufficiency.
"I know of another lumber firm in Ala-
bama, now one of the largest producers of
naval stores in the entire turpentine belt,
which has about enough at prevailing
prices, though the company is equipped
for operating on a large scale at a nomi-
nal cost. This company will curtail its
operations about 65 per cent. another
year. They will turn in and saw a mag-
nifiicent tract of timber which has been
boxed but two years.
"There appears to be a general opinion
prevailing among the sawmill men, who,
have large holdings and who have been
boxing their timber previous to sawing,
tha there is-no profit in it and that they
have made a mistake by departing from
the old plan of sawing independent of
whether the timber had been boxed or lt.
"Of course all this depends upon the
prices which prevail. If prices go up,
those whom I have quoted will continue
Mr. LaFontisee states that there are
still some excellent tracts of timber in
Alabama and Mississippi untouched. He
says, however, that there is not the in-
crease in operations in Mississippi, louisi-
ana and Texas that was expected for this
year when prices were ranging around the
sixty cent mark. He states that there
is a deep interest felt in the movement in
this city for the organization of an export
company and that operators generally are
hoping to see a consummation of the plans
WOOD DISTILLATION IN agoy.
Statements Showing the Effects of the
Denatured Alcohol Law on the Produc-
tion of Hardwood and Softwood Distil-
lation in the United States.
The Bureau of the Census, with the as-
sistance of the Forest Service of 'he De-
partment of Agriculture, has for some
years collected statistics concerning the
annual production of various forest prod-
ucts, and the preliminary figures on wood
distillation for the year ending Decem-
ber 31, 1907, have just been made public.
In the distillation of hardwoods, char-
coal, gray acetate, and alcohol constitute
the leading products. During 1907 the in-
dustry passed through its first year's ex-
perience under the workid~ of the so-
called free or denatured alcohol law.
While this law exerted no disturbing in-
fluence on the market value of such prod-
ucts as charcoal, acetate of lime, pyre-
ligneous acid, etc., its effect on wood alco-
hol was immediate and striking, result-
ing in a decline of more than 55 per ant
in the market value of this commodity-
from an average value per gallon of M
cents in 1906 to 15 cents in 1907. Othr-

wise, however, little or no evidence of the
law's operation is discernable in the sta-
tistics of the industry for the country as
a whole. In fact, the demand for charcoal
has been sufficient to cause a slight ad-
vance in the average value of this com-
modity, along with a substantial increase
in production, and this in a measure com-
pensated for the fall in the price of alco-
There were 106 active plants reported
for 1907, an increase of 14 over 1900. The
total consumption of wood-chictly birch,
beech, and maple-in 1907 was 1,219,771
cords, as against 1,144.s8hi cords in 1906,
an increase of 74,875 cords. The produc-
tion of charcoal increased from 45,657,721
bushels, valued at $2 35.,40, to 50,772,23L3
bushels valued at $ ,8;38,:392; that of gray
acetate from 9(.376.497 pioulids, valued at
$2,017,331, to 13:3.:74.941 pounds, valued
.at $2.5.5,938; and that of brown acetate
from 6.!Hi0.933 l1ounds. valued at $8.5777,
to 8, 150,848 pounds, valued at $94,446.
The reported yield of crude alcohol, on the
other hand, decreased from 7.871,494 gal-
lons, with a value of $2,676,191, to 7,741,-
645 gallons, with a value of $1,153,307, a
loss of 129,849 gallons, or 1.6 per cent, in
quantity, and of $1,5a2,884, or 56.9 per
cent, in value.
The leading States in hardwood distil-
lation on the basis of wood consumed
were Michigan. Pennsylvania and New
York, in the order named, these States
consuming in 1!07 89.2 per cent of the
total amount of wood utilized in this
branch of the industry. (f these States.
Michigan and New York show substan-
tial gain over 1!i0, both in the quantity
of wood consumed and in products, while
a slight decrease appears in the total for
Pennsylvania. As is the case with soft
wood distillation, the location of this
branch of the industry is determined
largely by tlhe distribution of the woods
which constitute its raw material.
In the distillation of pine and softwoods
generally turpentine is the leading prod-
uct, with charcoal, oils and tar as products
of secondary importance. Longleaf pine
supplies the bulk of the raw material,
though other species of pine as well as
other conifers are used. On the whole,
the showing for 1907 in this branch of
the industry was satisfactory. While the
inquiry disclosed only 31 plants in opera-
tion as against 32 in llMi, the quantity of
Nwood consumed increased from 50,234
cords to 61,149 cords, or 21.7 per cent.
This increase was accompanied by an ad-
vance in the average cost pler cord from
$2.38 to $3.44. The total yield in 1907 of
tnrlpetinc, the leading product, was 654,-
711 gallons, as against 503,427 gallons in
19(06. an increase in quantity of 151,284
gallons, or 30.1 per cent., while the aver-
age value per gallon remained substantial-
ly the sanme-alout 47 cents. The produc-
tion of tar and oils increased from 773,128
gallons, valued at $S1.797, to 1,152,752 gal-
lons, valued at $127.531. The production
of charcoal also showed marked increase,
from 791.887 bushels, with a value of
$44.381. to 1,158.364 bushels, with a value

industry are North Carolina, Florida and

Sawdust is one of the puzzling wastes
in lumbering operations. The waste is
serious, too, for the kerf-the part cut
out by the saw in the mill and transform-
ed into sawdust-always bears a rather
high ratio to the board obtained. In cut-
ting thin stuff, one-fourth of the log, or
S even more, may be kerf.
Efforts to turn sawdust into pulp for
the paper mill have usually been unsuc-
'- 'eemsful on account of mechanical difficul-
. eulties in handling. In several European
eountries, however, a new way has been
Sound of turning the sawdust to account.
The sawdust, chiefly pine and fir, is ground
t with millstones, exactly as old time mills
made cornmeal, or wheat or rye flour.
H Expensive machinery is not required, but
S it is necessary to take special precautions
Against fires which might start from
. sparks between the millstones.
The sawdust flour is sold to the dyna-
mite factories to be mixed with nitro-
S glycerine and form the body or absorbent
Sfor that high explosive. It is also in de-
' imand for the manufacture of cheap blot-
ting papers. The mills in the Hart Moun-

AMERICA USES MANY BARRELS.
Upwards of 150,000,000 barrels and cir-
cular packages are manufactured in the
United States annually. Few people, ex-
cept those whose business it is to know,
realize the extensiveness of the cooperage
industry in this country.
The heaviest demand comes from the
cement business. The flour business ranks
next, closely followed by sugar. Contain-
ers for fence staples, bolts, nuts, nails,
and packages for roasted coffee, spices,
crockery, fruits and vegetables follow in
the order named, while glass manufactur-
ers, baking powder companies, liquor dis-
tillers, and candy, tobacco and cheese
packers are big users of barrels. The de-
nmand for barrels for molasses, oil, lard and
pork, is also enormous, while dry paint,
glue. snuff, oatmeal, screws and general
hardwood articles annually increase the
demand on the cooperage supply.
While the amount of expenditure for
barrels can be quite closely estimated for
a given year, it is not possible to say how
many barrels are in actual use. The life
of a barrel is put down at one year by the
trade, but this is far from true. A ma-
jority of barrels are used many times.
They begin as sugar or flour barrels, and
are then sold to the farmer for shipping
his product to the market. It may be
that they are returned to him several
times, carrying potatoes to the market on
the first trip, and tobacco or lettuce on the
next, each cargo being lighter in weight
than the previous one, owing to the weak-
ened condition of the barrel. Finally the
barrel may serve out its life work as a
refuse receptacle, and in the end can be
used for fuel. Thus, it may be said, that
a barrel fills as useful a career as almost
any other manufactured article, and its
life is much longer than a season.
The demand for barrels is steadily
growing because modern machinery has
made it possible to make them for the
trade cheaper than almost any other form
of durable package. That it is the most
convenient form of package has long been
acknowledged. The timber used in tight
barrels has to be selected with care, as it
must not only be water-tight, but barrels
for the oil, whiskey and paint trades, in
addition, must be capable of resisting
high internal pressure. The lumber used
for this work must be carefully selected,
that cured by slow air drying under shel-
ter being the most satisfactory.

SKY SCRAPERS MAY SINK NEW YORK
New York, Aug. 25-New York will never
have an office building a mile tall in
spite of all the recent talk to that effect.
Indeed it will never have one half a mile
high for that matter, unless the present
building code is expanded instead of con-
tracted as the present architectural policy
demands. For the limit in height of any
building in New York is now absolutely
fixed at 2,000 feet, or about two-fifths of
a, mile, and in view of the present outcry
against the skyscrapers it seems certain
that that limit will not only never be in-
creased, but will shortly de diminished.
The reason that New York will never have
any of the mile high buildings predicted
for it is not only architectural but geo-
logiecal The city does not rest on a basis
any too firm as it is. Beyond a certain
point it will be absolutely impossible to
*. rest additional weight on the underpin-
ning of the city. The limit of this weight
it has just been figured out amounts to a
foundation pressure of the enormous
amount of ffteen tons to the square foot.
On a building lot 200 feet square, which
is about the limit in the already crowded
. downtown district, this will mean a max-
S ium height of 2,000 feet. Other factors,
however, are likely to step in before such
@ a limit is reached, for on a 200 square
foot plot this 2,000 feet high office would
est $60,000,000. It would weigh accord-
ing to present estimates 516,000 tons, or
more than twice the tonnage of the pres-
S eat aavy. Moreover the wind pressure on
any one of its walls would be more than
AO tons. Altogether such a monstros-
ity is made almost impossible by its phys-
ieal limitations and it hardly seems prob-
able that any New York syndicate will
e-ver exceed 1,000 feet provided of course
that the present building laws are not so
retrieted as to make the toothpick office

CLAY COUNTY TAX SALES CASES.
Arguments were made yesterday before
Ciruit Judge Call in chambers regarding
the sale for taxes of lands in Clay county
aggregating more than 35,000 acres. The
matter came up yesterday in the suit of
Hillman-Sutherland Company against E.
N. Holt, tax collector for Clay county, on
a demurrer to the bill of complaint. The
action was brought to restrain the collec-
tor from selling the lands for taxes and
advertising for the year 1847. Another
suit of the same character was argued,
being that of the DeLoach-Edwards Com-
pany against E. N. IHolt. No decisions
were given in these cases.

I have on hand a very large assortment of stills, ranging in size from tem
to fifty Iarrels capacity. I have put the prices of these stills down to jult
a little above cost, in order to dislxse of them. Copper is now exceedingly
cheap. and there is no reason why the price of stills should not be reduced em-
siderably. Naval stores are at a very low price, and I have decided to put thd-
price of stills in keeping with same. Watch this space for my price list, via
\ ill be published later on. In the meantime if you are in the market for ay-
thing in the still line, ask me for prices, F. O. B. your railroad station. I
do not sell you what you want, I will make someone else sell you cheap.
specialty is closely riveted stills, with heavy bottoms, high crowns, larg
spouts, extra large worms and above all, stills that are guaranteed not to
leak. Drop our nearest shop a line, or wire us for your wants. Ask for ew
